Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank are officially married! Kicking off the second royal wedding of the year, the pair said "I do" earlier this morning at St. George's Chapel. And, despite a bit of unpredictably windy weather, the ceremony could not have been more fairy-tale worthy (have you seen the bride's tiara!?). To revel in their big day even further, let's take a look at their royal wedding ceremony, including their vow exchange.
Prince Andrew led his daughter through the nave of the wedding chapel, with the bride's mini wedding party in tow. From there, the father-daughter pair was met by the groom.
The Dean of Windsor presided over the couple as they exchanged vows and rings. Jack went first, professing, "I, Jack Christopher Stamp, take thee, Eugenie Victoria Helena to my wedded wife, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse: for richer, for poorer; in sickness and in health; to love and to cherish, till death us do part, according to God’s holy law; and thereto I give thee my troth."
When it came time for the royal bride to state her vows, Eugenie said, "I Eugenie Victoria Helena take thee Jack Christopher Stamp to my wedded husband, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse: for richer, for poorer; in sickness and in health; to love and to cherish, till death us do part, according to God’s holy law; and thereto I give thee my troth."
Following in the footsteps of Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton, Eugenie decided to remove the word "obey" from her wedding oaths, a trend that Princess Diana kicked off at her 1981 nuptials. Also sticking with royal wedding customs, Brooksbank did not receive a wedding band, a commonality among men in the House of Windsor.
Relatives of the bride and groom took turns giving readings. Jack's cousin, Charles Brooksbank, delivered an excerpt from from St. Paul's Letter to the Colossians. Princess Beatrice, Eugenie's maid of honor, chose to read a snippet from The Great Gatsby.
Singer-songwriter Andrea Bocelli lent his vocals during the ceremony, and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra also performed.
After a rendition of the national anthem, Eugenie and Brooksbank exited St. George's Chapel as husband and wife, sealing their newlywed status with a kiss.
So, when's the next royal wedding!? Congrats to the bride and groom!
